The Fashionable Toddler’s Guide to the Pantone Color of the Year

“A naturally robust and earthy wine red, Marsala enriches our minds, bodies, and souls.” — Pantone

Well babies, the wait is over and Pantone has finally announced that THE color of 2015 will officially be Marsala. Now obviously you’ve been too busy hiding mom’s phone and stuffing the toilet with various important papers to fully execute your winter wardrobe and nursery decor scheme, so we’ve put together this handy guide to make sure you’re the most fashionable toddler on the playground:


1. Onesie

You’ll be extra cozy wiggling your way into your parents’ bed at 5 AM in this super cute onesie. Of course you aren’t tired — there are only two more hours until the sun comes up! Remember, it’s never too early to start watching Frozen on loop.

2. Diaper Bag

It’s not enough that you look fierce, as any A-list toddler knows, your personal assistant (Mommy) is a total reflection of your style game. This diaper bag will keep her from embarrassing you behind the stroller.

3. Bassinet

You might have outgrown it for sleeping but this bassinet is the perfect place to store your empty juice boxes. Keep it in your bedroom and use it as a hiding place whenever your personal assistant really needs you to put on your shoes because you’re already late.

4. Crib

This IS for sleeping but it’s also the place where you will be doing most of your crying late at night and early in the morning, so you want to make sure it’s aesthetically pleasing. Nothing ruins an evening tantrum like a crib that’s totally last season.

5. Baby Food

Sure, you tried a few blueberries last week – but that doesn’t mean you agreed to eat them forever. Drive your personal assistant crazy by refusing to let any food item that isn’t marsala-colored into your mouth. Bonus points if you insist that any utensils and flatware must also be burgundy.

6. Bonnet

If your hair is still in the “growing out” stages from last month’s unfortunate incident with the sticky chewing gum you found under the table, this bonnet is for you.

7. Moccasins

OMG Mommy is going to spend so much time trying to eat your little feet in these shoes. Make sure to outgrow them quickly so she has to buy you lots and lots of them.

8. Suspenders

Impress the rest of the toddler set by referring to these suspenders exclusively as “braces” (as they do on the Continent) and casually dropping references to “summering in Europe.” They’ll know who wears the training pants in the group.

9. Cape

If we learned anything from the bonnet, it’s that accessories are crucial. Wear a marsala beret and make everyone call you Pierre. Or just throw on this fancy fox cape for an Instagram photo shoot with your personal assistant (but refuse to sit still for more than two seconds at a time, so all the pictures come out blurry).
